ColorOS 13 brings in several new features like the Aquamorphic design and card style layout. The latest version of ColorOS also marks the debut of the company’s Dynamic Computing Engine, which according to the developers helps increase battery, makes the user interface smoother and improves memory management.

Oppo claims the new OS also improves the existing Always-on display feature and introduces support for Canvas, Insight and support for Bitmoji. It also introduces a new Spotify widget that lets users control playback, switch between music and see the currently playing track.

Users in India will also be able to check Swiggy and Zomato information without even having to turn the screen on. Then there is the Auto Pixelate feature that automatically recognises profile pictures and names in chat screenshots and blurs them.
